The Thousand-Mile War: World War II in Alaska and the Aleutians
by Brian Garfield
The Thousand-Mile War tells the often overlooked story of the World War II battles of the United States and Japan in Alaska. Captivated by the history of the brave men who served in the Aleutian campaign, renowned novelist and screenwriter Brian Garfield, wrote the first full-length history of the “forgotten war”. Garfield draws from statistics, personal interviews, letters, diaries, declassified photographs and many more illustrations to tell the story of a war fought in some of the worst climatic conditions on earth for men, ships, and airplanes.
